Saturday Nights on OWN have been confirmed for the long run, as paired to the renewal of Iyanla: FIx My Life for six more episodes, now OWN also renewed Raising Whitley for a new season consisting on ten more episodes.
Raising Whitley is a humorous, poignant new docu-series following actress and comedienne Kym Whitley and her riotous collective of friends – whom she calls “The Village” – as they attempt to do something none of them have ever done before: raise a baby…together.
When Kym signed up to mentor a troubled young girl, she never imagined she’d get a call from the hospital saying, “Your baby is ready.” After learning that her mentee exited the maternity ward leaving only Kym’s contact information, Kym experienced a cataclysmic moment. With less than an hour to make a life-changing decision – and to do a lifetime of soul-searching – Kym chose to become a mother. The Village banded together to help Kym bring up baby Joshua the best they know how, but sometimes it’s hard to tell who is more mature – Joshua or the adults tasked with raising him.
